"Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction." 2 Tim 4:2 After a Bible study with a young seeker named Tian at a Subway sandwhich shop we turned to leave and I asked a young lady sitting behind us about her beliefs. "Oh, I'm a Christian" she said confidently. "Can you tell me what that means to you? She thought for a moment, but then confessed that she had no idea. "How about if a neighbor who knows that you go to church were to ask you how he can go to heaven. What would you tell him?" She guessed that he should do good things and go to church. We went on to a great conversation about following Jesus, and it was good for Tian, the young man I was doing the Bible study with, as he was able to hear the basics of Christianity explained clearly to someone else who needs to hear it and it is being demonstrated right from the start that following Jesus means we are joining in His mission.
